In Honor of our Beloved Dorine Robles
The NRUSF: Dorine Robles Scholarship Award was created in memory of Dorine Robles. Dorine was born on January 2, 1948 in French, St. Martin NA. Having had migrated to America at an early age, Dorine always was self-motivated and knew the importance of a solid education. She was a devout Catholic who attended church weekly at St. Claire’s Church in Rosedale, Queens. She worked at Barst & Mukamall Law Firm as an office manager for over three decades and was a dedicated member of the Franciscan House of Prayer, which was an organization that raised money for orphanages in Trinidad & Tobago.
Everyone who knew Dorine knew her generosity, friendship, and dedication to helping her community. She was very community-oriented and would help anyone that she could possible.
Sadly, our beloved Dorine passed away on July 15, 2013 due to lung cancer. Even up until her death, she had continued to work tirelessly to help the community actively.
In establishing this scholarship, the NRUSF wishes to recognize the dedication to continued education and helping others that need support to pursue higher education.
